Yeah I was wondering if the "junky remarks" were gonna be deleted, or if this thread was gonna be locked... which would have been a real shame. Glad to see that it is still going... Thanks again Harry.

John, how about a little info on how you get the curves and the tight radiuses in the gold graphics so smooth. Did you mask the area and then cut away the area to be sprayed gold? Or did you somehow mask in such a way that you left the area to be painted uncovered? I'm sure a lot of members would like to know exactly how you achieved such smooth curves.

Sure Harry...........I masked the area to be painted uncovered.........I use "Datak" brand circut board tape size .015 and .040.........I like this tape because it is thin for taping off tight turns and has just the right adhesive..........first I use the 0.15 to tape off the graphic then I lay the .040 just barley covering over the 0.15 this will secure any movement in the tape........then I cut thin strips of 3M blue painters tape about an 1/8 inch wide and lay that barley over the 0.40..........I do this to make sure no over spray will appear.........then I cover the existing area with more pieces of blue tape...........I like to mix the paint thin enough so that it will dry faster when you lay the paint down..........I will remove the tape in sequence starting with the blue tape immediately after airbrushing.........so that it does not have enough time to dry fast and chip and flake........I will do one section at a time............cowl first, drivers side second, passenger side third etc........... hope I explained this ok?........when I try to explain something it`s kinda like same-way as when I build something and it is wrong :rolleyes:

I must Admit. I do not know who Kurt Wilson is. However he does have a pretty cool car, and is lucky to have John doing this replica. :D Excellent paint John, like always your work is standing out.

Hi Harry.........the steering rim is box stock ,I just painted it a wood grain look.......I used "Folk Art" brand acrylic water based paints ......white first,then I dry brushed light brown,then dark brown.......I hand drilled a couple of turns into the rim......all the way around the rim.......then I added "Pro Tech" .040 nut and bolt ends.......then misted a clear coat over the rim.......thanks
